"The word of God is the seed of the kingdom, and true succession is in the seed." -- Unknown

The keys of the kingdom were given by Jesus Christ to the church and therefore true succession is through the church. Mark Osgatharp

I agree. But the church must remain tied to the word to be a true church. For example, the catholicized Roman church probably has historical succession to the apostles, but through some who branched off or apostasized from the truth of the gospel. I think they lost the keys to the kingdom, so certainly there must be more than historical succession.

I'm not sure what the original quote meant, or even who said it. I posted it to see how others would take it and what thoughts it brought out.
